Case study: Mersey ferries industrial cleaning

Mersey Ferry - SnowdropRoberts & Son Plumbing and Heating have been operating across the North West and beyond for over 35 years. Their engineers specialise in all areas of the industry including domestic, trade and commercial repair and installation.

RS Plumbing and Heating provides a valuable front line service to organisations including local authority/councils and the private property sector. Within this area, the firm works with Mersey Ferries to maintain the inner workings of the passenger vessels.

We were appointed by RS Plumbing and Heating to conduct a full industrial clean of two vessels; Snowdrop and The Royal Iris. Snowdrop has recently undergone a rather eye catching makeover as part of Liverpool’s Biennial celebrations.

The task included the ferries’ engine room ducting systems, funnel ducting room and also the air intakes that feed the passenger toilets. Inspection panels were installed where needed in order to effectively carry out the works requested.

The cleaning was largely done dry using a number of hand tools, cleaning agents and degreasers and vacuums to remove all grease, grime and soot deposits of the aforementioned areas.

“Clearground have aided our business on numerous occasions at very short notice, Both their management and operations teams have gone the extra mile on all jobs to ensure our clients can resume full operations with minimal downtime.

Both the reactive and planned maintenance services we have received have been brilliant.

Clearground’s ability to offer an array of services has been key to ensuring successful completion of works in minimal timeframes and to high standards

I look forward to continuing to build a strong working relationship with Clearground Support Services and would have no problem in recommending them.”
